The most anticipated film of 2020 finally has a trailer. Wes Anderson will return to cinemas around the world on July 24th with The French Dispatch, a film that, from the first images released, seems not to abandon the style that made the American director famous.
We’re in France in the 50s and we follow the stories not only of the French Dispatch editorial staff, a weekly supplement of a local newspaper, but also the stories told on its pages. The film was born out of Wes Anderson’s love for The New Yorker, which he has been reading since he was a child and of which he keeps a large number of copies.
Anderson himself said:
The story is not easy to explain. It is about an American journalist who lives in France and creates his own newspaper. It is more a portrait of this man, of this journalist who fights to write what he wants to write. It’s not a film about freedom of the press, but when you talk about reporters, you automatically talk about what happens in the real world.”
In addition, The French Dispatch truly presents an exceptional cast formed among others by Tilda Swinton, Frances McDormand, Bill Murray, Jeffrey Wright, Adrien Brody, Benicio del Toro, Owen Wilson, Léa Seydoux and Timothée Chalamet.
